Inside mimeconf it says:

# Values set in this file will override the system-wide values for the file # with the same name in the central directory. The syntax for setting # values is identical.

so I added:

application/x-perl = exec rclperl text/plain = exec rclperl

However neither of the above ever get used. But, when I replace the lines in /usr/share/recoll/examples/mimeconf with the above then it properly processes those file types using the specified script.

These should be in an [index] section. Did you think of it ? Something like:


application/x-perl = exec rclperl

I have every reason to think that mimeconf works as documented, many people (myself included) use it.
